Anodizing CP Titanium
We are suppling tempered CP grades of titanium to the body jewelry industry. One customer anodize 6/4 eli without problems but has had little success with Grade 2 with a light temper. My knowledge of anodizing is nil and in looking for direction. Thanks John

Virtually all alloys and CP Ti will anodize. My guess is that the tempered CP had a significantly thicker natural oxide on it. The anodizing is an extremely thin Ti Oxide formation that causes a light interference that gives it the different colors when anodized at different voltages. The natural oxide must be completely removed to get a uniform color.
